of the biggest unions larry. he said in western europe, they may have higher unemployment but they have less inequality. this is what the agenda is all about. in a practical way, suppose you have a successful person. he or she want to build a house. to do that you might hire 15, 20, 25 people. you got a whole army of people who would go to work. but if you get taxed, you might not guy that house. and you won't build. that is the kind of logic i'm not hearing. dow think they get that? >> they don't. i saw lincoln. remember during the debate in 2008 charlie gibson asked the then president obama why raise capital gains? he said it is about social justice and fairness. it doesn't matter that it doesn't work. what counts to these people is class and attacking this rich guy and this poor person who doesn't have much money. but the guy is on the margin of poverty. would love to go to work as a landscaper in this hypothetical home that i am describing. the guy on the margin, they would love to work like that. so, there is a connection there and i don't see why washington our friends on the democrati
changing the status to a right to work state, giving workers the freedom to opt out of paying union dues. we have the labor policy director for the mackinac center for labor policy. tell me what it is you're trying to do with this legislation. >> there are rumors that michigan can become the 24th rights work state in the nation. he gives workers the ability to choose whether or not to pay a union and without rights or protections, they can actually get the worker fired in a union if they choose not to gerri: i understand there are some five groups of unions to protest what you're trying to do. what you make of that? >> they are protesting what they think may be an imminent right to work bill introduced in michigan's capital in lansing. gerri: lets get what we always talk about on the show. that is the money. what difference will wright's work state make the people of michigan? how would it be different? this is a state that has been struggling for some time now. >> it has been struggling. it has been some of the worst in the nation. just looking at the statistics, the right to work state
on the municipality have been the deals the public unions have struck for their workers. we have seen it in places where the promises have been made where there i not the money to support. i there any question the administration -- that the president is open to the idea that the president is open to bail out these municipalities? >> there is no mention so far. but you are right to point out the union connect. president obama's reelect heavily supported by municipal unions and it's the pensions promised to municipal union workers, that is what is strangling many of the states that are in such dire straight. illinois and california in particular. will quid pro quo be called in by municipal unions like it has been called in by the municipal councilmember. martha: what happens if they don't get it. what happens if there aren't bailouts. >> detroit is bankrupt. other cities have declared bankruptcy. they are gone. it's debatable whether those union pensions are in pact paid. if you are looking over the cliff, the municipal debt and the state debt cliff, you are right on the edge of serious problem for
there in detroit and all the unions are will the ones who are blocking real reform from happening in detroit. what they ought to do is selling off assets to get revenue, they should be outsourcing to private companies so they can have money. that is what they need. what is funny in all of this, mitt romney got a lot of flak after the election when he said that he felt obama won the election because obama promised american voters gifts and free things. he got a lost flak from democrats and republicans. look, this is exactly what mitt romney was talking about. here is someone saying, wait, i voted for you, obama, now give me the free stuff. this is exactly what mitt romney was talking about. >>eric: president obama ran the last campaign on things are getting better. give me for more years we are almost there. a very good indication of things are really getting better in the economy is food stamp use. food stamps are up to a record level. november showed 46 million people on food stamps. if things are getting better, how does that keep going up? >>guest: exactly. if you remember back during the campa
. this is the pursuit of perfection. >> greta: a california teachers union produces a shocking video. a 60 seconds. ainsley has the headlines. the senate passed a sweeping defense bill but far from a done deal. the $631 billion measure calls for a speedy withdrawal of u.s. forces from afghanistan, tighter sanctions on iran and money for military equipment and personnel. the obama administration has threatened to veto the measure saying it would limit the president a's thoroughly to hane terror suspects. the nypd questioning a man now in connection with yesterday's deadly subway push. police say surveillance video shows a man fitting the suspect's description arguing on the platform. moments later a 58-year-old father who eyewitnesses say tried to break up the fight was pushed in front of an approaching train. police say they nabbed the suspect just around the corner from the subway station. i'm ainsle ainsley earhardt. back to greta. >> greta: how about this? a california teachers' union producing a video cartoon called tax the rich. >> over i'm ric time rich peopld they weren't rich enough so the
: how? a california teachers' union producing a video cartoon called tax the rich. >> over i'm ric time rich peopld they weren't rich enough so they came up with ways to get richer. the first way was with tax cuts. they say why should i care witht other non-rich people. i can hire people to work for me for less money than taxes cost. then i can keep the rest of my taxes for me. meanwhile, instead of investing in things most people would accuse and instead of providing jobs that paid people well like they used to, rich people found they could make more money on wall street. wall street is a place where money makes money. here the 1% made money so fast, they devoted more and more record to it. they took some of that money and sent it far away where workers had no rights to produce things that workers used to produce here. when ordinary people wondered why rich people needed so much money, the 1% said don't worry. this is good for you, too, because it will trickle down from us to you. some day you'll be rich, and then the rules we made for us will be your rules, too. >> okay. now, what was
for the minimum wage to be raised to $15 an hour. for the right to unionize without interference. they would be a powerful force. fast food workers are the fourth largest occupation in the country! they earn on average about $18,000 a year. for full time. that's roughly the poverty level for a family of three. at the same time, these big chains are reporting record profits. and the issue underscores a fundamental, moral question. will we build an economy that pays workers enough to support a family or will we use the government to subsidize people's wages through food stamps and other support. today, we're not doing either one. in michigan, i signed a bill to raise the minimum wage to $7.40 an hour. that was six years ago. it needs to be raised again. the federal minimum wage is lower than that. it is now just $7.25 an hour. try, just try imagine earning $7.25 an hour and paying a mortgage or rent try living on $7.25 an hour and buying food, much less acquiring transportation in some way. forget clothing. tha
